Celsius WG Herbicide makes controlling over 120 grassy and broadleaf weeds in warm-season turfgrasses simple.  

This selective post-emergent turf herbicide combines three active ingredients in an easy-to-use wettable granule formulation. It can takedown difficult to control and troublesome weeds such as crabgrass, doveweed, dollarweed, virginia buttonweed, quackgrass, chamberbitter, and many more.  
It can be used in a variety of warm-season turf grasses, including St. Augustinegrass, centipedegrass, bermudagrass, zoysiagrass, and buffalograss, but it should not be used in desirable cool-season turfs. 

The amount of Celsius you will need to treat 1,000 square feet will depend on the weeds you want to control.  There are three usage rates – a low rate, a mid-rate, and a high-rate – and the rates to use for specific weeds can be found in the tables on the product label.      

To mix your spray solution, simply fill your sprayer with half the required amount of water, add in the Celsius and mix thoroughly.  Add in any dye markers or surfactants, then finish adding the remaining water.  Continue agitating the spray mixture periodically as you apply.

A non-ionic surfactant can be added to your spray mixture if the weed pressure is high, and for difficult to control weeds, adding a methylated seed oil, or M-S-O, may provide improved control.

Celsius WG can also be tank-mixed with certain other pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicides to broaden the weeds controlled or to add a greater residual effect. In applications where it is mixed with other herbicides, be sure to follow the label of all products. Surfactants and other spray adjuvants should not be used in your mixture if temperatures are above 90 degrees Fahrenheight. Spot treating St. Augustinegrass when temperatures are above 90 degrees may cause a temporary slowdown in turf growth.  Normal growth rates should return after mowing.  

While Celsius WG has a reduced risk of significant phytotoxicity – or plant damage at high temperatures, it's still best to apply to weeds during the cooler points of the day – including in the early morning hours to protect your grass.  

Always wear appropriate PPE when applying Celsius WG weed killer and other herbicides – This includes long sleeve shirts and long pants, closed-toe shoes with socks, and chemical resistant gloves. 

Be sure to read the label for full application instructions and usage rates to safely and effectively apply Celsius WG Herbicide.
